INTRODUCTION TO CHOI ----------------------- If I were to be asked whom I thought was the least-appreciated character in KoF (Sports Team guys notwithstanding) I'd definetly say that it was Choi. Not that he isn't appreciated as being an effective character by the KoF community, because he most certainly is, but I've heard few people say that they relied on him as I did. I've never been in an Arcade where Choi was being played. A sad misfortune, to be sure, since I desperately want to learn from someone better than me. I have limited experience with KoF in the Arcade as well, due to the fact that there were never KoF machines around when I wanted them. Now, I look on the internet and I cannot find a Choi FAQ to reference, so I decided to start writing. This may turn out to be crap by someone else's standards, but I hope it turns out better than that. With that having been said, on to the FAQ. ^_^ --------------------------- 2. BACKGROUND STORY/PROFILE --------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------------- CHOI BOUNGE --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Birthplace: Korea Birth date: October 25, 1961 (39 at the writing of this FAQ) Height: 1.53 m (5') Weight: 44 kg (96 lbs) Blood type: B Hobbies: Cutting things Favourite food: Crab Favourite sport: Gymnastics Most valuable: His claws, which he made himself Hates the most: Kongyaku Fighting style: Taekwondo with self-taught claw fighting Before he and Chang were known as partners in crime, Choi lived a happy and relatively peaceful life. As the proud owner of a butcher shop in a small Korean suburb, he enjoyed his work, for precision cutting came as a natural talent to him from the time he was very young. Being small of size, it came in rather handy sometimes when the going got rough. He loved a good fight, especially when he got to use his claws to slash his oppressors, claws he had fashioned himself. Choi also had a wife, whom he loved very much... but something stirred within him that made him hunger for a more exciting life. He had a desire to see more of the world, and he wanted to live a life of action and danger. One cool night, Choi was standing outside his butcher shop, staring at the stars and contemplating their magic. As nice and peaceful as it seemed, the hunger for excitement crept up into his conscious thoughts. He was about to wish upon the stars to bring him his desire, when suddenly a huge mountain of a man came tearing around the corner, at speeds that men his size should not be able to achieve. He slammed right into Choi, who was too surprised to move out of the way. The big man tripped as Choi went sailing through the air, both of them falling to rest a moment later. When the dust settled, Choi got a good look at the guy. He was shocked. The man before him was taller than anyone he'd ever seen, bald and bearded, with a gut the size of a live cow. Over his shoulder, a large iron ball gleamed, it's chain trailing down his back. Choi then noticed that this ball was shackled to him. Suddenly, a realization came to Choi. "Could this be the infamous criminal, Chang Koehan? That would mean that he's just escaped from jail!" The big man rose up, dwarfing the small butcher. At first, it seemed that he had a mind to crush the little guy where he stood, but then, his face softened up as he introduced himself. It was indeed Chang Koehan. He had indeed just escaped from prison. "It's not so bad! The food's good, the people are funny, and the life of crime is really exciting!" Excitement? That was the magic word for Choi. An idea crept into his head. This guy looked like a big lummox, that's probably why he always gets caught... but with his brawn and Choi's brains... "Hey Koehan! I gotta proposition to make!" The rest is history. Choi chose to remain living at home, continuing to work at his butcher shop. However, late at night, when his wife was asleep, he would leave to begin his criminal adventures with Chang. They had a great time; Chang and his iron ball were a human wrecking crew, and Choi terrorized the night-goers with his steel claws and rabid laughter. They mugged many people, and knocked over (sometimes literally) many stores, accumulating a large amount of cash. He was having the time of his life, and really becoming good friends with Chang, though he made some pretty stupid mistakes at times. Choi felt that he'd finally found his calling in life, and he grinned savagely every night as he realized his dreams. That all came abruptly to a stop, however, one fateful evening. Chang and Choi were casing a target. It was a young woman. She looked wealthy, and certainly defenseless. The two bandits decided to scare her and take her purse. Just as they readied for the strike, they were swept up in a tornado as white as snow! They knew they were being attacked by a man, but he moved so swiftly and gracefully... it was as if they were being assaulted by an irresistable force of nature. When they had been throughouly trounced, they got a good look at their assailant. Wearing a white Taekwondo Gi, it was none other than internationally renowned martial artist, Kim Kaphwan! The two were dumbfounded at their bad lUck. They were caught this time for certain. Kim spoke. "You must be Chang and Choi. I've heard about the two of you. Terrorizing the people of this fine town... I'm going to rid the world of you scum once and for all!" Chang and Choi screamed, fearing their deaths! Kim raised one eyebrow in wonder. "Uhhh... no, I don't mean I'm going to kill you." Chang and Choi sighed in simultaneous relief. "Instead, I'm going to whip the two of you into shape by training you in the ways of Taekwondo! Through rigorous discipline, the two of you will be reformed into model citizens once again!" Chang and Choi screamed again! After many failed escape attempts (all of which were Chang's fault, he and his big mouth!), Chang and Choi began to learn the arts. Though they were strictly opposed to the training, the swift and violent beatings that Kim layed upon them were enough to get them to cease their protestations. At least, externally... Chang and Choi still planned on escaping, they just had to wait for the right opportunity. Kim came to the two one evening after a hard day of training and told them his plans. He decided to enter the new King of Fighters tournament, with three fighters being the regulation. The two ex-criminals figured out the rest. They were the other two fighters. Choi came up with a plan to escape after the tournament, but Kim thwarted it, as he would continue to do every year leading up to the KoF 99 tourney. That time, however, Kim had been in contact with his old sparring partner, Jhun. An imposing and frightening man (for Chang and Choi anyway), Jhun thought Kim's method of justice was soft and ineffective. When Kim accepted his challenge to see who's justice method was the best, the more subtle (???) way of Kim, or the ultra-violent (!!!) way of Jhun, Choi was the unfortunate one. He ended up drawing the short straw, so to speak, and began training under the brutality of Jhun's methods of justice. Currently, Choi's skills have improved greatly. He feels very confident that he and Chang can nail Kim and Jhun and escape after they win the tournament... yes, indeed! They'll be unstoppable!! (Yeah, right...) ---------------- 3. COMMAND MOVES ---------------- 1) Sankaku Tobi Command: Jump against a wall, and as you touch it, push the joystick/pad in the opposite direction. Result: Choi will jump off of the wall, increasing the height and distance he can reach. This is a very useful move for escaping from corners or dropping down on an unsuspecting enemy. The nice thing about the move is that you can still perform any attack that you'd normally be able to perform in mid-air, including the Hishou Kyaku and Chouzetsu Rinkaiten Toppa. 2) Mukuro Zuki Command: Back or Forward + A Result: Choi thrusts forward with his claws, body turned sideways, while appearing to nearly lose his balance on one leg. It only hits once and comes out slow, but this move is awesome when comboed. It guard crushes, which means that any move succeeding it is unblockable. It can cancel into a special move, and also into the Hou'ou Kyaku DM if you use the B button version. This can be your main form of damage. More in the Combos section. 3) Toorima Geri Command: Back or Forward + B Result: Choi flips his body forward and strikes the enemy with his heel. It's a nice little overhead that's Worked pretty well for me. Don't abuse it, or it loses it's usefulness. ---------------- 4. SPECIAL MOVES ---------------- 1) Tatsumaki Shippuu Zan Command: Charge Down, then press Up + P Result: Choi rapidly spins, twirling upward with his claws outstretched, slicing the opponent several times. This move is good for chipping damage in a corner (though it leaves you wide open if they live through it), and can be used as an anti-air from a good distance away, but there are better moves to use for that (like jump CD). This is a fun move to use in Counter Mode, though, due to the fact that you can cancel it into a Chouzetsu Rinkaiten Toppa. 2) Hishou Kyaku Command: While in the air, roll the joystick or pad a quarter circle from down to forward and press Kick Result: Choi diagonally dives on his opponent, flapping his arms and attacking with rapid kicks to the head. This move is highly useful for covering yourself in the air, and quickly punishing missed moves by your opponent. You can also cancel this move into a DM while in Counter Mode, making it a great move to use while in CM. 3) Senpuu Hien Sashi Command: Charge Back, then press Forward + P Result: Choi spins towards his his enemy longways, like a rotating spear, striking with his claws. After the first strike, you can follow it up with two more by simply pressing the direction you want him to fly in and any button. This is called the Houkou Tenkan, and is listed below as a separate move. On the whole, I prefer to use the Hishou Kuuretsu Zan instead of this move, as it comes out faster and you can fake out with the wall jumps. That move is also listed below. 4) Hishou Kuuretsu Zan Command: Charge Down, then press Up + K. If you hold K, you'll attack after hitting the wall. Result: Choi screeches and jumps up into the air. Depending on where you are in comparison to the wall and to your enemy, Choi will either leap over the head of the enemy or bounce off the wall. If K is held when he hits the wall, Choi spins at the enemy like a spear (just like the Senpuu Hien Sashi) and strikes with his claws. You can follow this move up with the Houkou Tenkan for another 1 or 2 strikes. You can also change direction, just like with the Punch version. Note that the B version makes Choi attack on a 45 degree downward slope. 5) Houkou Tenkan Command: Press any direction + P or K during Senpuu Hien Sashi or Hishou Kuuretsu Zan Result: A repetition of the previous strike, in whatever direction you like. You can use this to escape after an unsuccessful strike, or to juggle if the situation permits. 6) Kaiten Hien Zan Command: Roll the joystick or pad a quarter circle from down to back and press Punch Result: Choi rolls on the ground forward and slowly advances. Once it hits, Choi continues to roll up the body of the opponent, jumping backwards after hitting several times. This move is like a vacuum. If the enemy is hear you and not blocking, they may get sucked into it for most of the hits. However, throwing this move out isn't always safe, so use it sparingly. You can be countered by a quick opponent. You can use the Kishuu Hien Zuki before this move hits, though. 7) Kishuu Hien Zuki Command: Press Punch during the Kaiten Hien Zan, before it hits the opponent Result: Choi dives foward out of his roll and strikes with both claws. Can be used as a surprise maneuver, and can be cancelled into a DM if you're in Counter Mode. -------------------- 5. DESPERATION MOVES -------------------- 1) Hou'ou Kyaku Command: Roll the joystick or pad a quarter circle forward, then a half circle from forward to back, then press Kick. Result: Choi runs along the ground with his hands by his sides until he meets with the enemy. When the move hits, he goes into a series of strikes using his claws, feet, and his body. He ends up twirling like a tornado, then kicking the enemy into the air with a kick similar to Kim's. This move is great when the B button is used because it comes out quick and can be easily comboed (especially when used with the guard-crushing Mukuro Zuki). More on this in the combos section. 2) Shin! Chouzetsu Tatsumaki Shinkuu Zan Command: Roll joystick or pad in a half circle from forward to back twice, then press Punch Result: Choi begins to spin at a rapid rate, and a huge tornado forms around him. You can move back and forth during this, so press the enemy. To my knowledge, you're invincible during this, so use it to your advantage. Best use of this move is to catch and juggle a fallen enemy. The SDM version is the best for this. 3) Shin! Chouzetsu Rinkaiten Toppa Command: While in the air, roll the joystick or pad a quarter circle from down to forward twice, then press Punch Result: Choi dives on his enemy from the air, surrounded by orange wind (too... much... tang...). The A button version makes Choi dive straight down, while the C version makes him dive at a 45 degree angle. The SDM versions are both like the C version, flying at an angle. -------------------- 6. CHOI AS A STRIKER -------------------- Here is an outline of what Choi does when called as a Striker. The move is called "Chouhatsu Sanmai". During this, Choi will come out from the side of the screen just like all strikers and if the opponent is far away, he will do one of three taunts. This has the effect of lowering the enemy's Power Gauge. If the opponent is close, Choi will do a Tatsumaki Shippuu Zan that will either hit two times close up, or 11 times if they're a bit father out. What makes Choi's Striker unique is that he can attack after he's taunted. If the enemy gets close to Choi while he's taunting them (any taunt, it doesn't matter which one), then he attacks with the Shippuu Zan. This gives Choi great use as a Striker, since he can both lower the opponent's Power Gauge AND attack in the same Striker bomb. A good time to use this is at the end of a match. Save all 5 bombs for the final match. There are plenty of times when you'll break even with your opponent and you'll both be near death. You can use him as an attacking deterrent (due to the automatic pop-up) and to ensure they don't get a game-winning super or worse, Armor or Counter mode. I've won several matches this way, and let me tell you from experience that it's quite effective, even if it's just to eat a few more seconds off the clock or to scare off the opponent. Personally, I'd rather be using him as a fighting character, but that's me. :) --------- 7. COMBOS --------- Okay, before I list the combos, let me just say a few things. First, this section isn't a section to outline every single combo in Choi's arsenal, just a few basic combos, then a few more advanced combos. Some can be done easily in everyday play, and some only with hours of practice (or a lot of experience). I'll leave it up to you which are which. Second, know that while combos are the fastest and most 'economical' way to drain an opponents' life bar, there are other ways to win. I generally go for short combos because I'm certain they'll connect. If you can perform the "Triple All-Beef Phatty McBoot Combo" without batting an eyelash, more power to ya. UPDATE: It seems the majority of combos involving the Guard Crush of the Mukuro Zuki (when preceeded by a move) only work in the Arcade version, as this bug seems to have been taken out of the DC and PSX versions. Command moves usually lose their special properties (such as overhead or guard crush) when preceeded by another move in a combo). This ommittance was apparently a mistake on the part of the programmers corrected in the home versions. Thanks to Duo Yang (Sophia) who told me it didn't work for him. (Charging down) Crouching B, Crouching A, Up + Punch (Shippuu Zan) (Charging down) Jump-in D, Crouching C, Up + Punch (Shippuu Zan) Jump-in D, Crouching C, QCF HCB + B (Hou-ou Kyaku) Crouching B, Crouching A, Forward + B (Toorima Geri), QCF HCB + B (Hou'ou Kyaku) Crouching B, Crouching A, Forward + A (Mukuro Zuki), QCF HCB + B (Hou'ou Kyaku) Note: The guard crush properties of the Mukuro Zuki makes the DM in this combo UNBLOCKABLE! Jumping Cross-up C (may hit twice if the C hits high enough), (Charging down) Crouching C, Up + Punch (Shippuu Zan) Jumping Cross-up C (as above), Standing C, Forward + B (Toorima Geri), Standing B, QCF HCB + B (Hou'ou Kyaku) Jumping Cross-up C (as above), Crouching B, Crouching A, QCF HCB + B (Hou'ou Kyaku) Jumping Cross-up C (as above), Standing C, Forward + A (Mukuro Zuki), QCF HCB + B (Hou'ou Kyaku) Note: As above, the Mukuro Zuki before the DM makes it UNBLOCKABLE! (While in Counter Mode) (In air) QCF D (Hishou Kyaku), QCF x2 + C (Rinkaiten Toppa) ----------- 8. STRATEGY ----------- Strategy with Choi is relatively simple, and open to modification by whatever means you're comfortable with. Note that these tips are merely meant as guidelines for the way I play, and you may not be comfortable playing how I do, or you may have better ways. If you feel that something in this section needs correction or clarification, please feel free to e-mail me. First of all, know that Choi jumps higher and moves faster than any character in the game. Add his tiny size to that, and you've got a very dangerous character. While leaping around madly and slashing may be effective against some scrubs (and fun, to boot!), you'll get better results with controlled bursts of offense. Allow me to outline a few offensive strategies. Foremost on the list of strats are the use of his normal moves. His crouching D comes out relatively fast and can be used with impunity. His CD, both standing and jumping, should be used to cover you and to push the enemy back. His jumping C is his best combo starter, especially when you cross up (see Combos section above). His standing or crouching B can be used to chain special attacks or a Hou'ou Kyaku executed with B. Most of his normal attacks other than that are simply not as effective as those listed above. Recapping: Standing and Jumping CD, Crouching D, Standing or Crouching B. His command attacks are great. As you saw in the Combos section, that Mukuro Zuki (Forward or Back + A) can guard crush and can be used to make a (B) Hou'ou Kyaku unblockable. This by itself makes Choi a menace. And as far as his overhead goes, well who doesn't like an overhead? Because he's so small, it doesn't always look like an overhead, which can be used to fool opponents into blocking in the wrong areas. Use that speed to your advantage, fake them out, then combo. I hate to sound like a broken record, but Combos are easily the fastest way to do damage as Choi. After you lay into them for a few seconds with the odd special move, you'll have a DM cocked and ready to fire. Start crossups and low/high combos. Tack that (B) Hou'ou Kyaku onto the end of everything. On a side note, I think it goes without saying, but Counter Mode is the way to go for Choi. With the ability to link all of his supers, it makes every move he does a potential match-ender. Very dangerous in the right hands. If it's single move strategy you're after, I have a few strats to outline on that basis, too. Not everyone can do combos like crazy. You should work towards those larger and more complicated combos, but nothing's wrong if you don't feel like doing so. You can use the Shippuu Zan as an anti-air, but several higher-priority moves can knock you out of it or trade hits with you. You're not Chang, so trading hits isn't a good idea. However, sometimes the A button version can be used safely and in the right situations, hitting for a few hits when they don't expect it. The best time to use the C version is when you're being crossed up, especially in the corner. Not as devastating as it was in previous games, the Shippuu Zan can empty a gauge pretty fast if you catch the opponent at the right moment. Just as they reach the apex of their hop or jump, you can pop up with this move and kiss a large chunk of their life goodbye, as the Shippuu Zan hits multiple times on the way up. Where it would toss them away out in the open, in the corner it juggles for a few more hits. In 98, this usually sounded the end of a match, but here, it's just a nice little bonus and a good deterrent for those pesky cross-up combo characters. Still in single move strategy, using the Senpuu Hien Sashi and the Hishou Kuuretsu Zan at the right moments can be thoroughly frustrating for your opponent, making it that much easier for you to win. One of the biggest complaints about Choi is the annoyance factor, so use it to your advantage. Make him make as much noise as possible! These two moves fit the bill. Choi is all, "RAKEE! RAKEE! RAKEE!" and don't forget his hilariously annoying taunt. Use both versions to surprise your opponent, juggle them for a couple of hits, and annoy them thoroughly. Use the Hishou Kyaku repeatedly. Sometimes the repetition of a move is the last thing they expect, and sometimes it's exactly what they expect. Depending on who you're playing against, repeating this move can be a serious threat. Those who have uppercuts which autoguard or quick retaliation moves may punish you for it, but if you mix up what you do while in the air, you can sometimes do a threepeat with the Hishou Kyaku to either do massive chip damage or hit them when they fail to successfully retailiate. Either way, you've got a winner. Just don't overuse it, or the effectiveness wears off with their awareness. The Kaiten Hien Zan to Kishuu Hien Zuki can be effective as well. Going through with the Kaiten Hien Zan can often mean disaster during it's long recovery time. Less so when the Kishuu Hien Zuki is used to strike out. As with all of Choi's moves, use this carefully. If you mix this in with a few other moves, they won't even see it coming. Since he rolls up into such a small ball, it makes the perfect follow up to any blocked crouching attack (especially those that don't push you back very far). Choi's (B) Hou'ou Kyaku comes out fast and punishes quickly. Use it to punish whiffs and blocked moves, and to stop distant jump-ins cold. An alternative to using Shippuu Zan when stopping a cross-up or an attempted escape from the corner by your opponent is the Chouzetsu Tatsumaki Shinkuu Zan DM. Especially in it's SDM form, this can end a match if it connects near the corner. Not to be denied, the Rinkaiten Toppa can be used in place of the diving kick in some circumstances, to rain death from directly above the opponent (and the unwise may not know which way to block!), or to cause general fear and mayhem. It comes out quick and connects, so it's usually safe to throw out at random, just don't get predictable with it or you'll find yourself sucking on a Haohshokouken or equally nasty super. As fast as Choi is, he's not faster than a bullet, so to speak, so be careful with your single moves and when you use them. Soon you'll develop your own flow and will be able to use Choi more effectively in your own way. I hope this section has been helpful for you. ----------------- 9. CHOI FUN FACTS ----------------- 1) Choi has often been thought to be a parody of horror film icon "Freddy Krueger" of the "Nightmare on Elm Street" series of teen scream cult horror movies. I'd say this was a safe bet, looking at his KoF 94-95 costume. The claws and the hat are the biggest clues, but who knows why they made him so small, or gave him such a high pitched voice? I guess going along the lines of the "parody" theory, these could be attributed to Choi being like unto a caracature of Freddy, meant to exaggerate certain features to make a character more (or less) frightening. 2) Choi has been in every King of Fighters game ever made except for the portable games (excepting Card Fighters Clash). Why this is true mystifies me. Don't get me wrong, I like Choi, but they take out "cooler" and "more popular" characters like Billy Kane, Eiji Kisaragi, Geese Howard, etc, and then leave in silly characters like Chang and Choi. Personally, I'm glad this is true, but it still seems somewhat strange. 3) Wanna hear Choi sing? "Monster Maezuka", Choi's seiyuu (voice actor) does a song called "Choi Bounge Ondo" on one of the King of Fighters CD's (I'll look up which one and tell you later). Here are the lyrics to that song in romanji. ////////////////////////////////////////// Choi Bounge Ondo Arrangement / Composition: Monster Maezuka Singer: Monster Maezuka \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Zenkoku no King of Fighters Fan no minasama, asshi ga KOF no hana no wakiyaku, kagayaku joen dan'yuushou Choi Bounge deyansu.

This one went by much faster (mostly since I didn't have to compile tons of information like I did for the 'History of Sumo' in my E. Honda FAQ). First, I'd like to thank my fiancee, Jessica, for not killing me when I used her as a scratching post for Choi, and for her undying support. You're getting downright wicked with Mai, Jess! Second, Kailu Lantis (who has been very kind). I used his profile info and, with permission rewrote his character background info into my own words. His hard work on the KOF Story FAQ has long been appreciated by the KOF community. Third, the guys and gals on the KOF ML (firstname.lastname@example.org), especially Punny. He clarified a few points for me, extended my combos and informed me of the unblockable status of the (B) Hou'ou Kyaku after a Mukuro Zuki. Fourth, to Agetec for releasing this game over here. Despite my complaints about the editing of Chin, this game got me back into Fighting again. Why I left is beyond me. Special thanks to CJAYC for his awesome site and for posting my FAQs. Finally, to my friends and family who always give me their support in all my projects, no matter how small. Thanks, everyone.
